I have been tutoring since 2001, and I have particular expertise with standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, SSAT and ISEE. I also tutor math and writing for middle school and high school students.
I was trained by and spent 5 years working for one of the major test prep companies. While working for that company, I earned a "Tutor of the Year" award and I was one of the most in-demand tutors for my excellent student results. Specifically, one of my students earned a perfect score on the SAT and I've helped coach several other students to perfect section scores.
I teach students both strategies for how to tackle each section of the test and the content they'll need to know in order to excel. I also work with students on timing strategies so they neither run out of time nor rush during a section. I do assign weekly homework, as it is critical for students to practice the strategies they learn and feel comfortable with them so they will use them during the test.
Most of my students see score increases following tutoring (nearly all students if they are motivated to do well and practice the specific test strategies). I've helped coach students to 300+ point improvements on the SAT, 5+ point improvements on the ACT and 25%+ improvements on the SSAT and ISEE.
I have several references available. I would be happy to talk to you more about your student's goals and how I can help your child achieve them.
